SIR AUBREY DE VERE
Irish poet and prose writer
(1788 - 1846)

Prejudice, which sees, what it pleases, cannot see what is plain.
      - [Prejudice]

This span of life was lent for lofty duties, not for selfishness; not to be wiled away for aimless dreams, but to improve ourselves, and serve mankind.
      - [Life]

Man should be ever better than he seems.
      - A Song of Faith [Goodness]

There is no remedy for time misspent;
  No healing for the waste of idleness,
    Whose very languor is a punishment
      Heavier than active souls can feel or guess.
      - A Song of Faith--Devout Exercises and Sonnets
        [Idleness]

Art thou a type of beauty, or of power,
  Of sweet enjoyment, or disastrous sin?
    For each thy name denoteth, Passion flower!
      O no! thy pure corolla's depth within
        We trace a holier symbol; yea, a sign
          'Twixt God and man; a record of that hour
            When the expiatory act divine
              Cancelled that curse which was our mortal dower.
                It is the Cross!
      - A Song of Faith--Devout Exercises and Sonnets--The Passion Flower
        [Passion Flowers]

O Love-star of the unbeloved March,
  When cold and shrill,
    Forth flows beneath a low, dim-lighted arch
      The wind that beats sharp crag and barren hill,
        And keeps unfilmed the lately torpid rill!
      - Ode to the Daffodil [Daffodils]

How blue were Ariadne's eyes
  When, from the sea's horizon line,
    At eve, she raised them on the skies!
      My Psyche, bluer far are thine.
      - Psyche [Eyes]

Memory, in widow's weeds, with naked feet stands on a tombstone.
      - Widowhood [Memory]
